fun, primarily.

It's amazing what my friends can do, really. The same group of gals that threw my french-themed fete outdid themselves again, this time, showering Erin and her husband, Mike, in a co-ed, primary color paradise at a miniature golf course. 
As we've grown up together over the past 15 years, we've all married, some have babies, some have some on the way and showers aren't just a girlfriend production. They now involve some heavy lifting and creativity from the men in our world, and in this case, I was especially thankful for two in particular, who helped pull this together and made it easy - so easy - on all of us. 

'Twas a splendid day of golf, pizza, beer, cake and good, good friends. And some cute, cute details, for which I can take no credit, but I am going to share. 
How to make a random party room at a miniature golf course look FAB (and save some $ while doing it):

+ cutest table runners: long rectangles of astro turf
+ garland lined with clothespins
+ diaper cakes
+ lots of balloons (tip: rent a helium tank and DIY)
+ spray painted tees
+ spray-painted golf balls (tips: local course provided used driving range balls for free (just ask!), and Amanda used an egg carton to help make spray painting easy, a la Easter egg decorating)
+ cake from Becker's, of course
+ also: cute DIY-printed invitation (not photographed) made easy by Etsy

A lot of thought, care and planning went into a really fun day on Saturday. And btw, I forgot how fun miniature golf is with a group of pals. It was a lot like a really fun date night set in high school, minus Bananarama

We're so excited for Baby U. Congratulations, Erin and Mike!

You and your friends really are amazing. I'm glad you share these great ideas with us. I've used some of your inspiring ideas for showers I've given.
